About Us

Welcome to Better Than Crickets! My name is Clay (CJ) Norsworthy, and I am the proud owner of this family-operated business. Together with my parents and children, we have created a thriving enterprise centered around our shared passion for exotic pets and raising insects.

Growing up in a family that cherished unusual and captivating pets, I was fortunate to develop a deep appreciation for the wonders of the natural world. It was my remarkable grandma who first encouraged me to embark on my insect-raising journey when I was just ten years old. Little did I know that this initial spark of interest would ignite a lifelong passion and ultimately lead to the creation of Better Than Crickets.

I officially started this venture during my middle school years, driven by my fascination with the intricate and delicate balance of nature. Over the past two decades, I have devoted myself to honing my skills and expanding my expertise in raising, selling, and shipping live animals. The knowledge and experience gained throughout this journey have been invaluable, allowing me to provide the highest quality products and services to our valued customers.

At Better Than Crickets, our commitment goes beyond simply offering top-notch feeder insects. We are constantly striving to improve and diversify our range, seeking to raise various species of feeder insects to meet the ever-evolving needs of pet owners and enthusiasts. Our mission is to provide not only the best nutrition for your exotic companions but also an enriching and reliable experience for you.

As we continue on this exciting path, I am dedicated to surpassing the expectations of our customers and the industry as a whole. Our relentless pursuit of excellence drives us to continuously enhance our methods, ensure the well-being of our insects, and deliver exceptional customer service. We are honored to be a part of your pet care journey and look forward to sharing our expertise and passion with you.

Thank you for choosing Better Than Crickets. Together, let's explore new horizons and make your pet's life even better!
